Resilient Water Infrastructure: Improving Understanding and Assessing Needs

1 star2 stars3 stars4 stars5 stars

The long-term goal of this research is to drive water utilities to become more resilient enterprises. A principal motivation is the need to maintain stakeholder confidence in utilities’ capacity to manage the substantive challenges they face (in the short-, mid- and long-term). In support of that overall aim, this project: (1) Helps establish a common definition for “resilient infrastructure” in the context of the water utility sector in the United States; (2) Identified existing resources, ongoing efforts, best practices, and potential partner agencies or organizations addressing infrastructure resilience in the water sector, in the United States and internationally; (3) Identified and prioritized a set of targeted research needs and objectives that, if addressed, will underpin the development of pragmatic tools and guidance for water utilities.
